Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

    Re: Copy Last Years Sales

    I had a script to blank out the fields. After changing it to the appropriate fields, I it a try. Fixed a couple errors and tried again. It took only 6 seconds to blank out or purge the data from the fields in 47,000 records. One thing I thought of is to also include the SALEID field as well as these are to be new records. Actually, this table probably doesn't need a SALEID field. All data in this table is linked to the parent and child tables by CUSTOMERID and SVCSITEID. Any reports where data from this table only, can be based on the record number.

    AS a LOL note. I have no memory of where this script came from. It is much to complicated for me to have written it. Someone must have written it for me some time ago because the table name was a bit different. the more I think about this, I must have created it with action scripting because the creator's name is my computer name. This is the script:

    'Operation is based on current filter and order of current table.
    'Get the current table's filter and order expression

    dim mru as p
    mru = mru_query("tlc_3apps")
    current_filter = mru.filter
    current_order = mru.order
    current_flags = mru.flags

    'Check to see if current filter/order is valid in the context of "tlc_3apps"
    if current_filter <> "" then
    if eval_valid(current_filter,"tlc_3apps") =.f. then
    a5_Operation_Warning() 'Display warning if current selection is meaningless
    current_filter = ".t."
    end if
    end if

    if current_order <> "" then
    if eval_valid(current_order,"tlc_3apps") = .f. then
    current_order = ""
    end if
    end if

    a_tbl ="tlc_3apps")
    ON ERROR GOTO ERROR2601201507123682

    DIM a5_operation_filter as C
    a5_operation_filter = current_filter
    query.filter = a5_operation_filter
    DIM a5_operation_order as C
    a5_operation_order = current_order
    query.order = a5_operation_order
    query.options = "I"+current_flags
    query.description = "Temporary Query"

    update.fields = 10
    update.field1 = "Applydate"
    update.expr1= "NULL_VALUE()"

    'update.expr12 = "NULL_VALUE()"

    'Prompt for confirmation before running the Operation.......
    dim rec_count as n

    rec_count = a5_get_records_in_query("tlc_3apps",a5_operation_filter,-1,.f.)
    message_text = rec_count + " record(s) from 'tlc_3apps' will be updated."+crlf(2)+ "OK to proceed?"
    operation_result=ui_msg_box("Update Operation",message_text,UI_OK_CANCEL+ UI_FIRST_BUTTON_DEFAULT+ UI_INFORMATION_SYMBOL)
    If operation_result <> ui_ok_selected then
    end if


    GOTO CONTINUE2601201507123682
    ui_msg_box("Error","Error running Update Operation"+crlf()+error_text_get())
    'Display a dialog box showing the results of the Operation
    '(If last parameter is blank, button to show result is not displayed).
    dim args as sql::arguments
    if eval_valid("arguments") then
    if typeof(arguments) = "P" then
    args = arguments
    end if
    end if
    a5_update_op_result(a_records_processed, a_records_violated,"tlc_3apps",a5_operation_filter,args)

    'If the Operation is run from within a Form or Browse, then refresh the window
    if is_object(topparent.this) then
    if topparent.Class() = "form" .or. topparent.class() = "browse" then
    end if
    end if

      You're not giving technology the credit it deserves for being able to do mundane tasks.
      Gregg is a great site to test and share sql code

          My dog passed away 3 years ago. I suppose since I still use his pic, he can write code for me. Maybe I can sell his services to write code for others. Ha! Another income source.
